sketch transcription from the diary of Jürgen Baldiga (*27.10.1959 Essen; † 4.12.1993 Berlin)

Jürgen Baldiga was a German artist and photographer.

He became known especially for his partly provocative photographic works, which dealt with his person and the topic AIDS. Jürgen Baldiga has published several books. His work has been shown in various exhibitions. His estate is in the archive of the Gay Museum in Berlin.

Baldiga died from the consequences of AIDS. On the 20th anniversary of his death, there was a cover picture in the gay magazine Siegessäule. His grave is on the Old St. Matthew Cemetery. On the cover of the "Zitty", Jürgen held the early gravestone in his arms.

In October 2014, Manfred Salzgeber was moved to the grave to the left of Jürgen after the former grave site had expired. So the friends are together again after 20 years.
